"the rachel maddow show starts now. ezra klein is filling in for rachel tonight. >> thank you, michael. thank you to you at home for sticking around for the next hour. rachel has the night off but we have big news out of washington, where nothing is happening. the house is not in session, and as of this moment has no plans to be in session for the end of the year. nothing is stirring, not even harry reid. yes, i'm still in the christmas spirit. the president meanwhile is in hawaii and won't be returning until tomorrow. now, normally nothing happening would not be big news in washington. nothing happening is kind of the status quo in washington. getting nothing done is to our political system as saying great is to tony the tiger. it's just kind of what we do now. right now, this week, nothing happening is huge news. the reason is that usually when washington doesn't do anything nothing happens. you do nothing, nothing happens. that's how it goes. in fact that's why people call it doing nothing. after you do i

"the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >> good evening, ed. thanks. and thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. it was a strange bomb shell in washington today. a little bit of news that came from an unexpected source. bob woodward got his hands on an audio recording of the top commanding general in afghanistan meeting off the record with a fox news analyst. the meeting took place last spring. it was general david petraeus who was at the time commander of all u.s. forces in the war in afghanistan. and on the tape, fox news analyst says that she was asked by her boss, by the chairman of fox news to pass along some very specific advice for general petraeus. >> if you're offered chairman, take it. if you're offered anything else, don't take it. resign in six months and run for president. okay? and i know you're not running for president, but at some point when you go to new york next, you may want to just chat with roger. i just say what i have suggested and that we've discussed is next time you go to new york you're going to

soto, lauren russeau, rachel davino and ann marie murph where i. they responded how we all hope we would respond in such terrifying circumstances. with courage and with love. giving their lives to protect the children many their care. >> chris jansing, this is a story of tragedy, but it is also a story of those heroic women, an extraordinary thing that they did do and tried to do in that school. >> there are so many extraordinary things about that. you know, you have a principal, a psychologist who literally put themselves in the way of a gunman. teachers who did the same thing. the observations that i have had over the last few days, lawrence, the clergy members who were in that room and had to be there to help tell the parents that they had lost a 6-year-old or a 7-year-old and now a community that this week has already scheduled 14 funerals, but the support system has risen up in a way that every person i've talked to has said has helped, has made a difference in a situation that is so heartbreaking you think nothing could possibly help. >> you know, the way i have been feeling

will cut it again. but that's the way a democracy works. host: next call comes from rachel in foreigny, texas. independent line. hi, rachel. caller: hi. i have two questions to ask you. when these companies move overseas, can they deduct the expense it costs them to -- does it cost us expense for them to move overseas? can they use that as a deductible? and also i respect -- our representatives are 47% because they get free insurance. and i was just wondering what does that cost the taxpayers in taxes? what part of our taxes is taken for their insurance? do you know that answer? guest: i know the answer to your first question and unfortunately i don't know the answer to your second question. the answer to your first question is that, yes, businesses can deduct and are supposed to deduct all of their expenses. and that could include closing down a factory and opening up a factory overseas. it will include, you know, anything. and so democrats have actually proposed, you know, a little change to the tax law which would prevent companies from being able to do that. but it wouldn't raise a
